. the candidates are hitting the trail strong this week. both mitt romney and president obama will start the day off in virginia. the president then heads to oakland, ohio where early voting is already underway. and romney hosts a rally in st. petersburg, florida this evening. romney's challenge now is to prove that was the real mitt romney we saw at the debates. the confident asserttive romney we saw during the debate is not the romney we have grown used to over the last couple of months. romney has since stood by his 47% statement but now he is rolling it back. here is what he said yesterday. >> it's completely wrong. and i absolutely believe, however, that my life has shown they care about 100%. >> you might think that this new romney is nothing but an act. if you do, you are not alone. here is what the president had to say to a crowd of 30,000 people yesterday in madison, wisconsin. >> i met this very spirited fellow who claims to be mitt romney. but i know it couldn't have been mitt romney because the real mitt romney has been running around the country this past year pr
for them. but the math doesn't add up. president obama hit him with a good line on that. >> obama: for 18 months he has been run on this tax plan, and now five weeks before the election he's saying that his big bold idea is "never mind." >> cenk: well, that's a good line because in fact romney went in and said, what me? i didn't do that. that was nonsense. now on the issue of medicare and cuts to senior citizens here's what romney said. >> romney: neither the president nor i are proposing any changes for any current retirees or near retirees either to social security or medicare. so if you're 60 or around 60 or older, you don't need to listen any further. >> cenk: here's my favorite line from president obama in response to that. >> obama: your 54, 55, you might want to listen because this will effect you. >> cenk: in other words, yeah, when he says, hey senior citizens hey i'm not going to screw you. he's saying 50 and 54-year-olds, i'm going to screw you instead. the fact that the president pointed that out i thought he did a good job responding on medicare. to bring in the discussion on
. i'm actually happy because a lot of democrats in my life have been a bit smugly certain that obama had this wrapped up, and he did obama a favor. you are going to see a much feistier president in the next two weeks. >> stephanie: yeah. talk about losing the battle, but winning the war. take a listen. >> obama: thank goodness somebody is finally getting tough on big bird. >> yeah, and he is saying that mitt romney is going to put the hammer on sesame street. >> yeah, and he wants to strap him to the top of his car. >> stephanie: exactly. gail in syracuse you are on with john fugelsang. hi, gail. >> caller: hi, stephanie. it's so great to finally talk with you. i have been trying to reach you for weeks now. >> stephanie: oh. well go ahead. >> caller: i was thinking with reference from [ inaudible ] talk about economic patriotism -- >> stephanie: right. >> caller: yeah the way i see it is basically paying for the stuff that you use -- >> stephanie: right. it's paying your fair share. >> caller: highways, you know, hiring americans so more americans can get jobs. >>
the governor just said about his own plan? >> obama: well for 18 months he has been running on this tax plan, and now, five weeks before the election he is saying his big bold idea is never mind, and the fact is that if you are lowering the rates the way you describe, governor, then it is not possible to come up with enough deductions and loopholes that only affect high income individuals to avoid either raising the deficit or burdening the middle class. it's math. it's arithmetic. now governor romney and i do share a deep interest in encouraging small business growth. so at the same time that my tax plan has already lowered taxes for 98% of families i also lowered taxes for small businesses 18 times, and what i want to do is continue the tax rates -- the tax cuts that we put into place for small businesses and families but i have said that for incomes over $250,000 a year that we should go back to the rates that we had when bill clinton was president when we created 23 million new jobs, went from deficit to surplus, and created a whole lot of millionaires to boot. a
attacking the president as weak on national security and that they're going to allege that the obama administration had positive intelligence that there was going to be a terrorist attack in libya. is that attack going to work? >> not at all. in fact, what's interesting is in the last week, when the republicans have been doing trial balloons with this attack, the president's advantage on foreign policy has actually increased. in the battleground poll, it increased by a third. over this period in time. the president's credentials on foreign policy are well-established and what's different about the president and mitt romney is the president has a record and he doesn't play politics with foreign policy. and i think that provides a great deal of security to voters. voters also rank the president as ahead of mitt romney on strong leadership. and that strong leadership is highly correlated with the decisive actions he's taken in foreign policy whether it is getting us out of iraq or finding osama bin laden or waiting to
. >> i am. good morning everybody. so some good news just out for president obama this morning going in tonight's debate. we won't have the official jobs numbers until later in the week. according to payroll processor adp, the private sector added 162,000 jobs in september and that's 9,000 more than expected. so unofficially, some good news going into tonight. the president obama also has about a 3-point lead in national polls according to the "wall street journal" nbc news one out most recently. senator rob portman has been playing the president as mitt romney prepares for the debate tonight. and he told cnn in an exclusive interview, it is his job to get under the candidate's skin and prepare him for the toughest attacks. portman has been the g.o.p. go-to guy for years. since 2000 he's played al gore, jon lieberman, john kerry and john edwards and now president obama. pretty malleable guy. he's reportedly been helping romney work on not getting overly defensive which is his weak point. he then tends to say thin
." mitt romney attacks president obama on one of the president's strengths--foreign policy. the new poll shows the president passive, disconnected performance at last week' debate may have cost him his lead. that despite friday's jobs numbers showed that unemployment had finally dropped below 8% for the first time since the president took office. according to the latest pew poll if the election were held today, 49% of likely voters would support mitt romney to just 45% for president obama. the president led romney by eight points in that same poll just under a month ago. we'll have more on that a little later in the program. mitt romney may have been hoping to widen that lead with a much anticipated speech at the virginia military institute today that articulated his approach on foreign policy, focusing primarily on u.s. relations in the middle east. the g.o.p. contender portrayed the president as naive in his dealings with our enemies inand enempty with our friends. >> i know the president hopes for a safer freer and more prosperous middle east applied with us. i share this hope. but ho
